While the “J. Cole Went Platinum With No Features” meme was cool, get ready for “J. Cole Went Platinum With No Features Twice”. Cole’s album 4 Your Eyez Only landed at the #1 spot and sold the equivalent of 492,000 copies in its first week. This is the biggest debut of 2016 behind Drake’s Views (1.04 million units) and Beyonce’s Lemonade (653,000 units).
I know Cole fans are sometimes irritating, but you do have to give it to them because they have now made all four of J. Cole’s albums hit #1 on the Billboard charts wth 4 Your Eyez Only being his biggest debut so far.
